Kobe Bryant said Tuesday that he is thinking about getting a new tattoo. The injured Los Angeles Lakers star shared his plans over Twitter to possibly get another religious-themed tattoo. Thinking about getting a lil more ink #whynot #justdoit — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) May 14, 2013 A rosary ove my right shoulder cap going down my arm maybe — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) May 14, 2013 Need to see some sketches of what that would look like first — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) May 14, 2013 Kobe went through the first part of his career with his body ink-free, but that changed when he faced charges of sexual assault. In 2003, he got a tattoo on his right arm to show his newfound commitment to his wife, Vanessa. The tattoo shows a crown with a butterfly, Vanessa’s name below that, and angel wings beneath her name. “That’s my wife, my angel,” Bryant said of his tattoos in 2003. “That’s a crown, and butterflies. Her name actually means butterfly.” Bryant also has tattoos on the inside part of his right forearm. The ink contains his daughters’ names, and he has another tattoo that says “Psalm XXVII,” which is a line of scripture he loves. Whatever tattoo he does get, I hope it doesn’t look like this.
